I got a notification from WordPress software that I have blogged a whole year now. Time really flies (no it doesn't, time is an abstract concept)! It has been very fruitful experience, I mean, most of the times I have been writing these blog posts when the rest of my family is still sleeping. House is totally quiet, there is just me, my thoughts and laptop, and perhaps a soft voice from air conditioner. In such situation, I can enter the flow state, writing is easy and my thoughts are crystal clear. Most of the times, I spend this prime time for writing the book.
Speaking about the book... I have something like 35 pages more or less ready. It's going to be great, a perfect paradigm buster. As a bonus, there is a decent chance that my antimatter idea will be tested and published before the book is ready! That will help the selling a bit
What else? There has been lively discussions about potential future VLHC (100 TeV hadron collider). How to create a case for it and so forth. Many are also hoping that Chinese might build the one. Bleeding edge particle physicists are trying to convince Chinese that the investment would be worthwhile. I bet they are trying anything, presenting biased scientific facts, having parties with Chinese, describing future China as particle research superpower. All this functions in two ways, they might get Chinese involved with the project or they might get some rival country committed instead. Very crafty indeed!
Who ever will build the thing (hopefully nobody), they are seriously wasting their time and money. Colliding particles in order to create "heavier" particles is a dead end, first of all, those particles are not even heavier, they have just decreased spin frequencies due to collision(s) and this is seen in a form of less sharply bend trajectories in magnetic field. Doing science based on totally flawed interpretations from the nature is just plain stupid and again, complete waste of time and money. Just don't do it!
Let's keep on blogging!
We can put "charged" particles with a same sign in a motion just by pushing them with those very same particles. Classical physics calls this phenomenon as electric current. Normally, particles moved in an electric current are electrons. What happens at atomic level when we put those electrons in motion? Let's say we have a battery and a circuit which has a resistor constraining electric current to the certain amount of electrons through the wire's cross sectional area per second. Until we close the circuit nothing happens.
Immediately after closing the circuit, stored electrons in the battery and in the wire between the battery and the switch get more volume to spread out. Moving electrons interact with free electrons already at present in wire. Due to electron spin frequency the spreading happens at the speed of light, until electrons hit the resistor which starts to regulate the speed of electric current.
What happens to those moving electrons? They get organized in very exciting way, neighbouring electrons end up having parallel spin vectors. The cause for this phenomenon is quite obvious. Electrons penetrating into a wire "force" free electrons already in wire to change their spin vector orientation. At first, those spin vectors turn throughout a cross section of wire perpendicular to incoming electrons. Incoming flow of electrons turn those spin vector orientations eventually into repulsive "mode", but at the same time, resistance (repulsion) from free electrons on the other side turn all spin vectors aligned with electrons' motion.
Organized electron spin vectors
Every time when electrons are put on a motion as in an electric current the outcome is the same, electron spin vectors get aligned with electrons' motion and they point to the same direction (towards the source of electric current). Electrons moving on the surface and just under the surface generate measurable effect from outside, so called magnetic field. In reality, magnetic field is very misleading name for the phenomenon which arises naturally from every spinning electrons all the time. Naturally, when a huge amount of electrons have parallel spin vectors, exerted force is measurable.
From theory to practise, I'm starting a collaboration among particle and theoretical physicists in order to create the proof of concept for my idea about antimatter. Originally I presented the invitation for the collaboration on ResearchGate. I'm happy to announce that such collaboration is getting air under its wings. If you are particle and/or theoretical physicist and interested in participating, just contact me via email. We are about to make physics history!
What kind of things we are going to study or do? That's totally up to collaborators, so I can't tell exact plan at the moment. However, the ultimate goal is to demonstrate that particle annihilation is possible with the method described in Antimatter paper. Naturally, further research will be needed to find the most effective setup and potential applications.
Let's get on with it!
Double slit experiment is usually conducted with photons, but it works also with any other particle or even with system of particles (e.g. fullerenes). How is it possible that interference pattern emerges only if both slits are open? And even in a case where particles are sent one by one interference pattern emerges if both slits are open. In some experiments, another slit was closed after particle passed slits and the result was no interference pattern. What's going on?
Moving and spinning particle generates waves into surrounding FTE and these waves make interface pattern possible in the first place. Particle interacts with its own waves if both slits are open. But if another slit is closed there is no suitable FTE waves to interact with hence no interference pattern, so far so good. But what's ruining potential interference pattern in a case where another slit is closed after a particle passed those slits? Waves have passed that other slit too before it was closed but still interference pattern won't emerge. How is that possible?
FTEPs in those waves are compressed into a smaller volume so they are better connected with neighboring FTEPs. Closing a slit causes perturbation for waves which is instantaneously experiences by all FTEPs constructing those waves. Spikes on particles do the trick!
Introduction to Theory of Everything by illusion (available later this year) has in depth information related to double slit experiment and answers to questions like, How it's possible to gain the path information without breaking an interference pattern? What's going on in delayed choice quantum eraser experiment?
Not that much... Taking care of my daytime job and family, trying to write a book, waiting Juno's flyby results and news from annihilation experiments etc. Business as usual For a guy like me, who wants things to happen quickly, this is very teaching period. These things don't happen quickly! I have only those 24 hours per day as everybody else. I have heard scientists envy Stephen Hawking because he doesn't have to do nothing but make science, his staff takes care of mundane everyday tasks. Now I understand those comments totally (Don't take that too seriously!)
But to be honest, things could be better. Doing science as my daytime job would ease my multitasking efforts considerably. The problem is that I don't want to work in the conventional way, getting my PhD, working as researcher at university or stuff like that. It wouldn't change anything. Most likely I would have to teach students, apply grants and take care of other administrative tasks. All this with much lower salary than in my current job! No way Jose! I'm looking for much more independent position or situation. Hopefully I can achieve that in a year or two.
Meanwhile, let's keep on rocking!
I have noticed that many of my blog readers are from China and I'm very happy about it China has been, is currently, and will be a technological superpower, so interest from country like China is very welcome. Naturally, I do respect many countries but Chinese people seem to be the most entrepreneurial spirited and very fast learners. Good for them, or maybe I should say, good for you!
Every country has its own problems so I don't bother to whine about those things too much. But for comparison, people tend to talk about human rights issues in China but at the same time, U.S. is killing innocent people (and yes, bad people too) with their drones and secret operations, sending people into the known and unknown camps for unknown periods of time, torturing them, spying their own citizens (and others) and so on. You got my point, right? Nobodies perfect and same applies to countries.
Maybe some day, I'll get an invitation from official China to speak about ToEbi, you never know
The doors are open! First essays are now public in FQXi 2014 Essay Contest, including my piece, Plan. How should humanity steer the future? That is an excellent question. Naturally every participant has his/her own opinion about it and so reading those essays will be so much fun Participants in FQXi Essay Contest represent wide variety of scientific thinkers. I think majority of the authors are professional scientists and the rest are independent researchers and armchair physicists.
Based on community votes, 40 top essays go to the final. However, FQXi members go straight to the final so those participants eat few seats from that 40. Last year, my position was something like 80./160 or something like that. Hopefully, this year I can climb up into 60 or so We'll see...
To be honest, originally I decided not to participate this year's contest but Philip Gibbs said that I should do it for the science (what ever that meant). So I thought, what a heck
Disclaimer: All the following applies if Juno's attitude is still towards Earth.
At the moment, spacecraft Juno is probably living its the most critical part of its journey. Some people might say that there is even more critical moments, like the launch, Earth flyby or approaching Jupiter. However, all those events are covered by scientific knowledge which is accurate and correct enough on those occasions. Problem is that contemporary physics has not realized all relevant factors in gravitational interactions, it lacks completely the effect from spinning. Being an ignorant may come with a price.
Distance between Juno and Earth is still relatively short, so Earth-Juno-Sun (EJS) angle is relatively large. EJS angle is about to peak around early March. Especially two months before the peak and one month after the peak make the biggest impact to the experienced gravitational interaction between Juno and Sun. How big is the impact? Unfortunately ToEbi isn't yet in the level capable of answering the question precisely, also the structure of spacecraft Juno with needed detail level is unknown to me.
Even without knowing the precise magnitude of the impact, I know that there will be an impact. Is it going to be too big to cover with onboard propellant? We should know the answer before June
One interesting notion! We still haven't got the answer to the question, How big was the flyby anomaly with Juno? Does it really take this long to find the answer and publish it? I doubt it Could you John D. Anderson give us any comment?
I got this wild idea of writing a book. I have already material for something like 100 pages or so, and in a book I could open up various matters more freely. Naturally I would use Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing and/or Amazon's CreateSpace, it can't get any easier than that. I'll be damned! Of course, at this moment there wouldn't be too many buyers but things are about to change...
I'll think about this for couple of days and then make the final decision. Only problem is my limited time resources, but I'll try to find a solution. This is so exciting!
Update: I decided to write a book. Actually, I'm going to write two books. First one will be targeted to physicists and advanced physics enthusiasts. It will contain all the math and details in ToEbi. Second one will be targeted to laymen and it won't contain any math.
